Eagle Feather Notes

    We are honored to introduce you to our latest reimagined creation: Eagle Feather Notes Blog (EFN) This vision formed a long time ago, has now come to life.

The Warrior Up Blanket

A collaborative art piece between Seventh Generation Fund for Indigenous Peoples and Eighth Generation, the Warrior Up blanket highlights the mighty yellowhammer flicker, a powerful medicine being that links Earth and Sky with each new day. The flicker is black and yellow and carries lessons of knowledge and new beginnings. The bird is centered above seven descending horizontal lines representing seven generations. The outer edges are bordered with two Yurok basket designs, the swallowtail and butterfly.

Tradition Bearers for Bio-cultural Diversity Fellowship

Native American / First Nations individuals who are grounded culturally and in community are the focus of this Fellowship. They seldom have the financial resources and time for deeper contemplation in their own culture or the chance to engage and explore new skills and empower their leadership. The Tradition Bearers for Bio-cultural Diversity Fellowship provides support for individual Indigenous leaders to focus on, reflect, and contemplate the trajectory of their work in stewardship for biological diversity and cultural identity. Awards of $10,000 each to two applicants.
